How to Watch the 2019 BAFTA Awards and Red Carpet

On Sunday, the critically acclaimed movie had four wins, including Cinematography and Film Not In The English Language, and has also earned Netflix its first-ever nomination for best picture at the Oscars later this month.

LONDON: Netflix production "Roma", a cinematic love letter to director Alfonso Cuaron´s childhood in Mexico City, triumphed at the Bafta film awards on Sunday, boosting its Oscar hopes.

USA actor Rami Malek poses with the award for a Leading Actor for his work on the film "Bohemian Rhapsody" at the BAFTA at the Royal Albert Hall in London, February 10, 2019.

Olivia Colman is riding high at the moment, with her role of Queen Anne in The Favourite particularly garnering her praise and numerous awards already.

Addressing the other winners from The Favourite, Olivia continued: "We are having an awesome night aren't we?" We've never talked about this, and I find it very emotional, but you were the classiest and coolest honour guards anyone could have.

"I'm Greek but this is a very British story so it's great to be recognised here,"he said".

Rachel Weisz, who played Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, in the film was named Best Supporting Actress, pipping her co-star Emma Stone who was nominated for her portrayal of Abigail Masham in the movie. "We're going to get so (drunk) later", Colman told her fellow "The Favourite" nominees as she picked up the award to loud cheers.

"This isn't for the lead it's for 'a' lead and as far as I'm concerned all three of us are the same and should be the lead and it's weird that we can't do that".

"Roma" won best film and best director, sharing the glory with British black comedy "The Favourite" which picked up best actress for Olivia Colman as Queen Anne and best supporting actress for Rachel Weisz playing her confidante and lover. "It's got my name on it, but we can scratch in some other names".

Rami Malek was named Best Actor for his performance in the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and Mahershala Ali won the statuette for his work in the USA civil rights-era road movie Green Book. He paid tribute to his co-star, Lady Gaga, who was attending the Grammys in LA, which were taking place on the same night. Best British short film was "73 Cows", while Vice won the best editing. The Bafta Fellowship went to Thelma Schoonmaker, film editor to Martin Scorsese for more than 50 years.
